Individual gifts may  be sent directly to Association of Graduates, USAFA/Class of '89 Project, 3116 Academy Drive, USAF Academy, CO 80840-4475 .  It is important that they are marked 'Class of '89 Project' and contain installment payment instructions if the classmate is offering a multiple payment.  Further, so as to not endanger credit card information, please DO NOT SEND this information via email or post.  Those wishing to commit using credit card payments may call the AOG POC for the 1989 Project, Al Burrell, at (719) 472-0300 and we'll gather the information telephonically.  He will be happy to take or return calls.

General Tax Deduction Information

The Association of Graduates is a fully qualified tax status 501(C)3 corporation.  Membership amounts are not deductible because products (“Checkpoints”, etal) are received.  Gifts to either the Annual Fund or a Class Project are deductible.  Any support you chose to provide your class project is tax deductible for the year in which it is paid.  A one time gift received during 2008 will be deductible for the 2008 tax year.  However, a pledged amount paid over multiple years will allow a tax deduction for the amount(s) paid in each respective tax year.  This applies to gifts of cash or those paid by check, credit card or electronic funds transfer.  Gifts paid by stock transfer generally fall under this rule, but may have other requirements attached.  If you are considering a transfer of shares, I encourage you to speak with your investment or tax consultant to determine if other considerations may apply.
